Replaced a leaking hodgepodge expansion tank to radiator hose with one piece. Hadn't driven the truck in about a month. Started beautifully and drove without any issues. #winning #howlongcanyourssitbeforeitwontstart

Finished installing my new GBR front and rear 4.14 diff and took it for a spin, very happy. Now need to get the compressor hooked up for the ARB, and have to get the speedo worked out...

Nice! You just need the WMIK grille, and headlight guards and bonnet basket, to polish it off! Any more photos?

Jason, I dont remember what size tire you were running but I bet with 4.1 diffs + reg LT230 ratio the speedo will read a little high.

When I ran 4.11s + 1.2 LT with 35x12.50's it was almost dead on...

I just stuck a gps on the dash.

Lately I've been having idle issues related to the IACV.
Using RoverGauge, I removed the IACV plunger and discovered little to no lube on the threads and keyways. I lubed them then reinstalled without the spring. I'm wondering if the spring is overworking the electrical motor. We shall see...

Are you moving, or just the truck?

I recently had a GBR rear driveshaft installed (I "candy caned" the old one at Wintergreen earlier this year) which eradicated all noticeable driveline vibration. I've been dealing with what sounded like an angry Honey Badger on Crack under my truck during off-throttle deceleration over 60 mph for the past 5 years. I also had RTE offset rear links installed at the same time. And finally I got rid of the old school bus steering wheel and replaced it with a Moto-Lita perforated leather wrapped wheel. I should have done that one years ago.

Stared at it. It's so blocked in by the rest of the family fleet that I won't get to drive it today......

I did. Tough decision but I have a 5 door being delivered next week. Both my 2 and 5 year old cried on the way home from leaving the truck with shipper. They will be happy once they get a whole row and doors to themselves and we're able to take it out more often.

I can certainly vouch for the versatility of a 5 door and can't blame you for going in that direction, especially having small children.

Good luck with the new Beast and may the old Beast have many adventures ahead!

New front seats with heat

Installed new foam and seat covers with lumbar support from Exmoor and hooked up the heated seats - should make winter driving slightly more comfortable.
